Optimize Maternal Function with Acute Care Occupational and Physical Therapy
"This course, wow, just made me realize how obstetric inpatient rehab NEEDS to be standard of care in every hospital/facility providing obstetric services to their community. I can not put it on the back burner now. The knowledge is TOO powerful now to not do something about it!"
"This course has been completely mind-blowing. Prior to this course, I had no idea where to begin with acute care OB therapy services or how to communicate with MD's/hospital administration to advocate for therapy services in this setting. I am leaving this course with extensive resources and knowledge that I can implement with patients immediately. I am going to take this information and move forward with initiating perinatal OT services in my community."
"This was one of the BEST continuing education courses I have ever taken. Very informative and interesting information. Rebeca did an awesome job at explaining the information in a way that was easy to understand and apply to my previous experiences. Would highly recommend."
"This was a fantastic course and now I feel confident in starting a program at my hospital! I am so excited for the new possibilities that this course has given me professionally, but I am even more excited about the women I will get to help have a better birth/recovery experience than I had."
""I believe that this course delivered on everything it said it would. I feel so much more prepared in starting a program on our LRDP unit. The information and exercises provided are easy to follow and perfect to hand out to patients."
"This course was FANTASTIC! As a student extremely interested in this setting and demographic of patients, I was so excited to have this as an opportunity, but was initially worried if my lack of clinical experience would deter my learning opportunity. It definitely did not! I feel that I gained so much wisdom and tangible evidence out of this course that I can translate into my future clinical practice. Rebeca and Jenna are so approachable and are beyond willing to help individuals learn and practice the information in this course. Cannot say enough positive things about this course!"
"I thoroughly enjoyed this course!! It provided me with increased confidence to treat these obstetric patients. I was supercharged when I got back to the hospital with identifying patients that could benefit from my services. I was able to justify with the nurses and with the residents, why they should put in a consult for these patients."
"Enhanced Recovery After Delivery is the perfect course to strengthen your obstetric rehab skills to work with mothers in the acute setting. The manual skills taught were immediately applicable in the inpatient setting and will definitely be beneficial in other settings as well."
"I am so excited about this content! I have felt a call to better serve maternal health in my community and now I have more tools in my toolbox to assist in making OB PT more of a reality in my hospital. I have had a few co-workers express interest in this course when I spoke about it and will definitely recommend it to them."
"This course was very beneficial. Rebeca and Jenna provided a relaxed and open learning environment and are clearly passionate about this topic. This course covered many topics that I found were gaps in other courses I have taken in the past as I feel many are less acute care focused. Thank you!!!"
"This was an awesome class. I will use what I've learned immediately. I love how you frame OB PT as an ethical issue, because I feel like that is lost on some of the people I have spoken with about this. I am so grateful for these resources and all this information to move forward with getting an inpatient OB PT program up and running in our hospital! It just seems so obvious that it should be happening!! Thank you both so much!"
"This is a very effective course to take to understand the role of acute care PT. Coming from an OP pelvic health therapist this is a very effective course to take to understand the role of acute care PT allowing for improved transition of care into the OP setting."
"This was a wonderful class and I feel prepared to present and discuss with OBGYNs and their team the need for more rehabilitation support on the WIC floor at my hospital. This is exactly what I have been looking for in a class!"
